This translation is written with PSP X9, if you work with older versions some things might be different but the result will be the same.

 

Acknowledgements:

Plugins:

  • Alien skin - Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Glass
  • Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow and Button Beveller II
  • MuRa's Meister - Perspective Tiling
  • Toadies - What Are You? and Weaver

 

Preparations:

  • Copy the Selections to the Selections folder of PSP
  • Double click on the Alien Skin Presets they will install automatically
  • Open all other files in PSP, minimize to Tray. NOTE: If you are using different colors you might need to colorize

From PSP 14 and higher there is no option for Image - Mirror & Image -  Flip There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side There is an easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE. From PSP 17 the option is back

 

 

Colors:
